The Soweto Marathon Trust (SMT) confirmed today that the organisation of the 2015 Soweto Marathon is well underway.
It will be hosted at Nasrec Expo Centre on 1 November 2015, and promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s successful event.
”The Soweto marathon is definitely on and fully supported, as always, by the Provincial Athletics Authority and Central Gauteng Athletics (CGA),” said Mr Sello Khunou, executive chairperson of the SMT.
The media launch of the 2015 Soweto Marathon and the naming of its new sponsor will take place on the 4th August 2015.
“Last year the race was partnered by Nike, but this year we have an exciting new naming sponsor committed to taking the marathon to lofty new heights,” said Mr Khunou. “Once the media launch is done, race entries will open and it will be all systems go for the 2015 Soweto Marathon.
“I want to take this opportunity to encourage all runners to continue with their training and preparations. Distances to choose from remain the standard marathon (42.2 km), the half-marathon (21.1 km) and the 10 km race. We are confident that there will be a full house of entries, as in 2014.”
